None of the companies assessed in the report has made commitments to transition to 100% renewable energy use across the supply chain by 2030, the report said.

BEIJING, December 2 (TMTPOST) — Ten Chinese tech companies received very low scores in the latest Greenpeace Tech Ranking, a report that tracks renewable energy commitments and follow-through by 30 of East Asia’s leading technology companies.

The ten Chinese companies that were scrutinized by the report are Baidu, Huawei, China Mobile, Tencent, China Unicom, China Telecom, JD.com, Global Data Solutions, Alibaba and Xiaomi. Other East Asian tech companies assessed in the report include traditional tech giants such as Sony, Samsung and Panasonic.

Chinese smartphone giant Xiaomi, e-commerce group Alibaba, data center service provider Global Data Solutions, JD.com, China Telecom, China Unicom, Tencent and China Mobile were among the lowest-scoring companies in the report, with all receiving a scoring below C-.

The 30 East Asian tech companies received low scoring in the report because of the general lack of commitment to carbon neutrality across the supply chain, data transparency and advocacy for climate change actions.

China, Japan and South Korea have all pledged commitment to fighting climate change at the recent U.N. Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow. China issued the Joint Glasgow Declaration on Enhancing Climate Action in the 2020s with the U.S. at COP26, promising commitments to collaboration and the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

Greenpeace Tech Ranking selected 30 companies to scrutinize from the 2019 Forbes Top 100 Digital Companies List while taking into consideration their domestic market value and social impact. The total electricity consumption of these 30 companies is similar to that of Thailand.

While the tech industry in East Asia is having increasing power demand, most electricity consumed by major tech companies in the region is still generated from burning fossil fuels such as coal and gas, the report noted.

The report was made in hopes of encouraging East Asia’s tech giants to enhance their contributions to national, regional and global climate efforts by assessing selected companies’ climate commitment, climate action, transparency and climate advocacy.
